Cannot wait!!!!! Judging by the March date comment, the album won't be quite so in the immediate future then. The EP first and the full record Summer or later. Perhaps this might be the first of a few AmRep Buzzo EP's like they did for his last solo record. Although as a side thought - i wonder how that recent vinyl lacquer plant fire will affect Melvins 12" releases this year. This potentially could be the one and only one of 2020.

my guess is that the black vinyl edition (of 200) w the colors that match the cd, t-shirt will be the last one of these 4 drops- (but who knows its HAZE)
 also i know he's done this before but cant seem to remember if there's been a set each time either ?

what are you talking about? The only black edition will be an edition of 100 (unless there’s some reg version I’m not familiar with).

This one was a quick draw. I accidentally clicked "two" copies the second it oepned and by the time I changed it to 1 and got to paypal it was sold out - maybe like 40 seconds?

Mine hasn’t arrived yet. It is coming to Australia though. Got stuck in Chicago for about 2 weeks. I’d say post is being quarantined. It’s doesn’t seem to have stopped, just slowed. It turns up when it turns up.

I'm waiting on vintage snare drum parts, they're ordered for me by sweetwater distributors, from the Rogers drum company...That was a month ago save a week from now and so far showing no signs that business is returning to normal...everything is shut down for the time being...I'm literally waiting for a tension screw assembly, it was a screw that cost me $50 basically...I should have ordered a long time ago but there you go...had to wait until the world stopped turning.

No probs Jules. I previously worked in distribution so I dare say it couldn’t stop. The backlog would be worse, and distribution warehouses would overflow. Reduction in logistical staff would slow enough to make up the quarantine time.

That being said, I have nothing to compare it too as nothing like this has happened before.

My Seawhores vinyl is still in the US, but at least the tracking system doesn't show that it departed from or arrived to the USPS International Distribution Center in Chicago.

Sorry dude, I think its a luck of the draw kinda thing. 
Just made sure I was already logged in to both ShoxOp and PayPal prior to starting, just to prevent the login causing a long enough delay to miss the sale.

Now that no one has anything better to do on a Sunday morning makes it especially difficult...

Not just saying so because I managed to get one but I think it’s my favorite variant.

Alive At The Fucker Club - Haze edition.  Heard it might be a little more spendy than 6 pack but it’s to slightly compensate for the band not being able to tour.  Supposed to be regular factory run later at more normal price.  Really want one but I’ve spent way too much lately on vinyl.  We’ll see how I’m feeling Sunday morning....

Ah, thanks for that. I don't step in the facebooks or instagrams or anything else that looks like something you wouldn't want to step in, so I reckon I miss the occasional doubloon that might actually be worth something. Usually it's a fair trade (meaning usually I'm not really missing all that much); once in a blue moon I guess something like these limited releases get past me. Oh well. I've been known to pay a little extra for a good time, but then I guess I do expect to have a really good time, y'know?

Ah yes, this is the analogy I was looking for.... describes Record Store Day to a T, along with all the other labels, etc, who take music fans for easy marks...

 Has Buzz recently commented on why the 3 month delay on the full length release? Yeah, I know Covid shit, plant closings, etc. Who the fuck makes the CDs for Ipecac? Are other Ipecac releases getting this long a delay? Maybe they need a better manufacturer. Haze is still pumping out AmRep CDs. Zappa Records announced a new live 4-CD 1970 set last month that's out in a few weeks through Universal.

It's likely the albums were manufactured ages ago and they're sitting on them during the covid-19 thing because Buzz/Dunn can't tour during it and putting out an album without any touring to promote it isn't the greatest idea.

If that's so, then that's a bad business strategy. Put the fucking thing out and sell some units. Tour when you can, and if the album has been selling well, people will turn out to see it live.  A band like Clutch puts out an album and there's literally a 1-2 yr cycle of touring with breaks before the next album comes out.

Post by: ))))(((( on June 11, 2020, 06:01:18 PM
Im going to say something a little controversial now......

In my opinion the album isn't actually that great.

Don't get me wrong it's good. I've listened to it a few times now and it's certainly that but i don't personally deem it a record i feel like going back to over and over again. Which, for instance is something i definitely more often do with a recently released Melvins album. For me Gift Of Sacrifice is not a patch on his first solo record. Although to be fair, this is quite clearly it's own different thing and shouldn't really be compared to what came before. Im really eager to hear what the rest of you folks think about the record in due course. Whether you agree in some sense with my own take or have very different impressions.

Im going to say something a little controversial now......

In my opinion the album isn't actually that great.  8-[

Don't get me wrong it's good. I've listened to it a few times now and it's certainly that but i don't personally deem it a record i feel like going back to over and over again. Which, for instance is something i definitely more often do with a recently released Melvins album. For me Gift Of Sacrifice is not a patch on his first solo record. Although to be fair, this is quite clearly it's own different thing and shouldn't really be compared to what came before. Im really eager to hear what the rest of you folks think about the record in due course. Whether you agree in some sense with my own take or have very different impressions.

I haven't heard it, I will wait and pay for it like an honest to god fan.

Don't worry, i'll be buying it too. I always do with the Ipecac Melvins/Buzz stuff. Think the only recent thing that got a wide release which i didn't buy was the Dale solo record. I wasn't too into that one. I do always like to hear an album first before buying it or not.

If the LPs are already pressed and packaged and in "storage", I'd bet they're sitting in boxes in an uncontrolled environment, just in time for summer. Buyer beware! :lol:

I like the record but by the time the CD shows up to my house I got a sinking feeling my excitement might dim a little. This actually happened with some records that got delayed last year.

If that's so, then that's a bad business strategy. Put the fucking thing out and sell some units. Tour when you can, and if the album has been selling well, people will turn out to see it live.  A band like Clutch puts out an album and there's literally a 1-2 yr cycle of touring with breaks before the next album comes out.

Dez Fafara from Devildriver on his new album release:

Quote
According to Fafara, the original plan was to release "Dealing With Demons I" a few months ago. "The record that was done — mid-2019, it was in the can, done, both records — [but it was pushed back] because of everything we were going through as a family," he said. "I wasn't about to leave my wife and go on tour or do any of that... Also, I've gotta say, a lot of bands now are pulling back their records, pulling back their music, [because] it's not a good business move to release a record — you can't tour on it, et cetera. I'm doing the exact opposite. It's what I've done my whole life. And I'm releasing music during this time.

I just never expected a follow up album, so glad it was released. Anything Trevor records is a bonus too!

This is for the Six Pack EP. I believe the LP isn’t shipping until mid August.

Shipping is a bit shit here in Aus at the moment. We have boarders closed to some states and limited international flights to certain cities. Sydney and Melbourne are taking majority of the load and Melbourne is restricting for the next 2 weeks. My guess is the CD had to go to Sydney to leave for UK where it would normally leave Melbourne. It may even have travelled via truck north from Bendigo to Shepparton to NSW, then Sydney.

Just wanted to say 'Housing, Luxury, Energy' is such a good song. My favourite on the new album and definitely a grower. To me it doesn't really quite sound like anything Buzz has done before. Very emotive sounding at the start.

it's available on discogs too.. both cd and vinyl, from italian stores. vinyl was more expensive than on Amazon though

RE: Gift Of Sacrifice LP

Seeing this thread pop up again got me to checking the order I placed with Ipecac EU on April 17th.
The initial release date was given as May 15 when i placed the order in April.
Ipecac is currently showing the release date as August 14.
I reckon when I placed the order, I expected there might be *some* kind of delay, given the state of the world this year.
It's a bit weird though, hearing that some folks seem to have copies already, if the release date was pushed back....

I can't wait to hear it (but I will resist the temptation to pirate.) I love when Buzz goes somewhere he's never gone before. "Kicking Machine" or "You Knew I Was Crazy" or "Black Heath" or "Goose Freight Train" or "Black Bock" all come to mind.

new album is great, Trevor adds a lot. wish it was a bit longer. first probably still remain my favourite!

Yeah, i agree, it's not as good as his first solo record, but then it is a very different entity in it's own way too. It's grown on me a bit.

from the nextmosh review:
Pitchfork succinctly dubbed the collection “a refreshing breath of unplugged f**k-it-all folk.”

Wow. Two lazy reviews in one.
Buzz should really punch both them right in the mush.

Me too.  I’m likely not going to be in town next week and it’s supposed to be 80s/90s so unless I want a melted pink blob in my mailbox I need to have someone check my mail for me
